Sure, but given that the CPython docs explicitly state a file object is a 
wrapper on top of FILE*/to expect FILE* behavior in corner cases, and the PyPy 
ones "Differences that are not listed here should be considered bugs of PyPy.", 
I think this is worth mentioning in PyPy docs.

Now the real question is why doesn't PyPy simply use FILE* objects? PyPy should 
either do this or fix the remaining deficiencies in the streamio.py code (but 
this seems like a waste of time vs plugging into FILE* to me).
